Ciavolich Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOP
The Ciavolichs were wool merchants from Bulgaria who built the family’s first cellar in 1853, one of the oldest wine making structures in Abruzzo. Chiara Chiavolich, the current generation owner, comes from a family of strong women. She strives to keep agricultural, wine and historical heritage intact in order to pass it on to future generations through sustainability. Ciavolich wines are made with both contemporary and ancient vinification techniques, respectful of the original variety and territory producing wines that are straightforward, clean and with deep spirit.
This wine is made with 100% Montepulciano – hand harvested in October, destemmed and crushed, then fermented in stainless under controlled temperature. Aged in stainless for almost a year then six months in the bottle.
These Montepulciano vineyards are located in Pianella, next to a small natural lake. The proximity to the lake allows the roots of the vines to stay humid even during the dry season. This freshness is found in the wine as it is aged in stainless to preserve this natural characteristic.
